SoyaCincau’s best smartphones under RM1,200 (2018 edition)

Meizu M6s

Meizu’s M6s is a fairly sleek looking smartphone from the Chinese smartphone maker. It makes some interesting design choices but the phone in itself is reasonably spec-ed for its price tag. In fact, it is the most affordable handset on this list.

In front, the phone packs a 5.7-inch display but it only pushes a HD+ resolution of 1440×720 pixels. Inside, it’s powered by a Samsung Exynos 7872 hexa-core processor that is basically a tuned down version of the processor you’d find in the Samsung Galaxy A8. That SoC is then mated to 3GB of RAM andd 32GB of internal storage, plus a 3,000 mAh battery to keep everything running.

For photos, it gets a 16MP f/2.0 main camera and an 8MP f/2.0 selfie shooter so there’s nothing out of the ordinary here. Its body is made of metal and Meizu made the questionable design choice of mounting the fingerprint scanner on the side of the handset ala-Sony.

UPDATE: Good news! We have updated and published a brand new Best smartphones under RM1,200 guide! It includes the new devices that have launched since this guide was published as well as the new discounted prices thanks to zero-rated GST. You can check it out here.
